Open Source Integration Engineer

CGI Stand: S1

Position Description:

We’re expanding our team of Open Source Integration Engineers. If you have a solid Linux foundation and an enthusiasm for technology, we’d love you to join us. We develop, build, and run a cutting edge Big Data platform for a meaningful and strategic client. We’re heavy on automation, great software engineering hardware, a mix of physical and virtual platforms and taking on steep learning curves. We’re delivering to our customer faster than they’ve experienced before. We’re motivated to improve the state of the art, for our customer, and for other engineers or consumers working on similar systems.

Job Description:
The team’s focus is a shared ownership and drive to achieve the customer’s goals. We aim for everyone to be involved in software integration, testing, deployment and operations. We all have direct contact with our customer on a daily basis. The team can ask questions directly to ensure they build what is really needed. Each of us takes ownership of a customer ‘story’ from beginning to end. If you are interested in technology integration (as opposed to developing from the ground up), rapid prototyping, regular demonstration of completed work, creating sustainable systems, and thinking ahead but not overcomplicating for today, this will suit you. Specifically you would be involved tasks such as the following,

• GNU/Linux software customisation, configuration and integration
• Hadoop customisation and API integration and its configuration with Ansible and Ambari
• Implementation of bespoke NiFi processors using Java and integration with commercial security software
• Ansible deployment automation of software, upgrades and Linux configuration
• Robot Framework and Selenium based test automation for post-build and post-deploy health checks
• Bug and technical debt triage, trouble shooting and resolution
• Production environment change back-porting to our Git repository
• Enhancement of our Bamboo based build and continuous integration processes
• System performance analysis and improvement of multiple, high spec large clusters
• Third line support of production environments with our system administrators

Your future duties and responsibilities:

You will be part of a team which is jointly responsible for designing, integrating, building, testing, maintenance and on-going operations of the production platform. Specifically you would be responsible for,

• Review, elaboration and accurate estimation of new requirements with our Product Owner
• Estimation and commitment, as a team, to deliver tested work every 2 weeks
• Development of work following strict ways of working, standards and levels of quality
• Regular presentation of progress and completed work to the team and the customer
• Stay up to date by following industry developments and be active in the Open Source community
• A drive to meet your personal objectives which are aligned to the business plan for the financial year
• Investment in your own skills development with support from the team and wider organisation

Required qualifications to be successful in this role:

• Demonstrable experience in at least one of: Linux (e.g. RHEL, CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu)
